The Ant-Man movies have provided the MCU with some comic relief so far, but Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania the stakes are going to be incredibly high with the film having a number of ties to the set Saga multivers. Now Kevin Feige revealed that the film will tie directly into Avengers: la dynasty Kangwhich is part of the Phase 6 Finals with Avengers: Secret War.
When Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was initially announced, the film was considered the last film of phase 4 with its release date in the summer of 2023. However, the film will now launch phase 5 in February 2023 as one of the most important films in the Saga multiverswith Jonathan Majors set to make his second and first real appearance as Kang the Conqueror.
After debuting in the Season 1 finale of Loki as He Who Remains, Jonathan Majors is set to return in a number of versions of Kang over the next two years before the Saga multivers comes to a close in late 2025. As well as being confirmed to appear in Lokiof the second season, which was also teased at D23, Majors will be the main villain of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniawhich, according to Kevin Fiege, “will start a direct line” with the events of La dynastie Kang.
Marvel Studios has yet to officially release the first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, but with the film only five months away, it wouldn’t be a stretch to expect it to hit the web very soon. Marvel has already previewed the trailer both at San Diego Comic-Con and again at D23 Expo. Both previews included the same ominous line uttered by Jonathan Majors’ Kang when he meets Scott Lang, that line being, “Did I kill you already?” They all merge together.
The line references Kang discovering that Scott is an Avenger, and suggests that the multiverse-crossing villain managed to defeat the Avengers in not one but several different universes. It’s no secret that Kang’s power will push Earth’s greatest heroes to their limits, and his story will change the MCU forever. Although there is no idea yet how Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will resolve its Kang storyline, but there’s certainly a strong sense that not all characters will emerge from the film unscathed, and the outcome will reverberate through the MCU for the next two years.
Good that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania going to be a darker movie than Paul Rudd’s previous outings as a size-shifting hero, the movie is also going to feature the usual level of humor we’ve come to expect from even Marvels darkest films. While we should hear more about the film in the coming months, it’s clear that those who felt like the MCU went astray in Phase 4 will soon find themselves in the middle of a Marvel adventure. high stakes.
